Newman is a different kind of university; we’re driven by the belief that higher education should enable us to develop new ways of understanding the world, and help make a positive impact within it. Our students become independent thinkers with ambition, empathy, and a lifelong love for learning.

We’re a friendly community of staff and students, and our small class sizes mean that academic staff can give personal care and attention to each student.

Reports frequently highlight the positive experience of students and individual attention offered by Newman’s staff.

Ensuring the degrees offered are relevant to the modern world is also a key feature at Newman. All full-time degrees have a work placement module and an important part of the curriculum is developing transferable skills useful for further study or employment after graduation. Many of the courses at Newman are developed in consultation with employers to ensure the course content is relevant and provides transferable skills valued by graduate employers.

Being founded as recently as 1968, the buildings are modern and purpose-built. The campus is arranged around a series of inner quadrangles of lawns and trees. Halls of residence provide bedrooms for over 200 students, conveniently adjacent to the teaching areas and well-stocked library. Over £20 million has been invested on improving the campus for students, including a vibrant new-build entrance and state-of-the-art library, creating a modern and attractive learning environment, a new halls of residence and new teaching spaces. Further developments are still ongoing to improve life on campus.

With approximately 2,700 students from a variety of backgrounds, Newman is becoming an increasingly popular place to study.

Birmingham City Centre is just a short drive away when you need it but the campus in Bartley Green provides everything you need whilst you study. The campus overlooks Bartley reservoir and the Worcestershire countryside beyond and its location makes it convenient for access to both the M5 and M42 motorways.
